Gereja Ayam - Review
Don’t miss out on this interesting massive chapel in the middle of the Indonesian forest. The most unique part of this place is its building shape which is shaped like a chicken, popularly known as chicken church now. This building is a pious tribute by Daniel Alamsjah who created possibly the most bird-like looking building in the world, complete with giant, squawking head, and ornate decorative tail feathers. Local artists have covered the inner walls with vibrant murals showing local mythology and history and there’s a small cafe nestled within the chicken’s rear that sells traditional, tasty treats. You can even climb up to the top of the bird’s head for amazing 360-degree views. A different experience for sure!

Gereja Ayam, Magelang Reviews
I was expecting a quiet place in the mountains, but by the time i got there, it's already converted into a tourist spot. So expect to share that beautiful sunrise moment with a couple of other strangers. It's still pretty cool . I love how people willing to renovate & rebuild this place. But what makes me disappointed is the building itself lose its soul. It was meant to be a pray house for every religions & beliefs, now it just felt like another tourist spot. Nothing is wrong with tourist spot, but i just wish they kept it as it is. Old building is good. Well kept & clean old building is amazing. Modernized old building with too many things added is disappointing.
Awesome little place - a short 5-10min walk up a steep hill or you can rent a 4x4 to drive you up to the top for very cheap. Unique and different tourist attraction. Has a coffee shop which sadly uses plastic disposable cups, and they give you a free bit of food also in a plastic disposable bowl which is just lazy and bad for the environment. Nice mountain views and a nice view of Borobudur temple.

So expect to share that beautiful sunrise moment with a couple of other strangers. It's still pretty cool, though... You won't get lost, there's clean bathrooms, there's even restaurant if you got hungry from all the climbing. Btw the climbing stairs almost killed me, you might want to consider renting a jeep to carry you up.

Anyway, if you're not that fit, there's a jeep that can take you to this place for a fee. I forgot to ask how much is it as i convinced myself that i can climb those stairs. I made it, with several stops to catch my breath 😅
Uniq place to visit. Symbol of unity in diversity of Indonesia where all religion are welcome. Well known as Gereja Ayam but it was meant to be a shape of Dove ( symbol of PEACE) and it is not a church either. Ticket included free fried casava.
